John Cale the Instrumentalist as a Songwriter! / 5
John Cale first solo album, originally released in 1970, came as a pleasant surprise to many fans of Velvet Underground. After his departure from V.U. in 1968 Cale had among other things produced for Nico, and some may have expected a more radical album, but here Cale reveals himself as a brilliant songwriter capable of writing and producing in a very melodic way, and several of these songs may even have had hit-potentials. Especially the catchy "Gideon's Bible" with its Beach Boys harmonies could very well had hit the charts, given the right exposure.

Among other very memorable tracks is the great opener "Hello There", featuring Cale driving piano. The majestic "Big Cloud" is another stand-out; sound almost like a Robbie Robertson song.

There's a slight country feel to another favourite,"Please", and the haunting "Ghost Story" features lyrics that make you think of Keith Reid of Procol Harum.

This could very well be John Cale's artistically most consistent album; which obviously says quite a lot, and at any rate this is without question the first time he really proves himself as a prolific songwriter.

Song "Half Past France"
I suppose I'm glad I'm on this train
And it's long
Somewhere between Dunkirk an Paris
Most people here are still asleep
But I'm awake
Looking out from here -- at half-past France

Things are much different here than Norway
Not so cold
Wonder when we'll be in Dundee
Old Hollweg knows his way around
He's no fool
Wish I'd get to see my son again

From here on it's got to be
A simple case of them or me
If they're alive then I am dead
Pray God and eat your daily bread
Take your time

We're so far away
Floating in this bay
We're so far away from home
Where we belong

I'm not afraid now of the dark anymore
And many mountains now are molehills
Back in Berlin they're all well fed
I don't care
People always bored me anyway

TERRY LAWSON: 'E' meant music's best (Detroit Free Press)
It was early 1967, and I had a serious choice to make: two albums I had been desiring at the town's hippest record shop -- symbolically located underground -- and the cash to buy just one.
Willie Loco waltzes back into town (Worcester Telegram & Gazette)
Willie Alexander may not have gotten as widely known as Neil Young or Lou Reed, but consider all three musicians as being from the same ilk. Informed by everything from R&B to pop to punk, Alexander, like Young or Reed, weaves songs from whatever fabrics inspire him at a given time and lets other people figure out what to call the finished products.
